Literary Loitering 96 – Franz Kafka, The Fifth Beatle

Literary Loitering 96 – Franz Kafka, The Fifth Beatle

The end of the year draws near, and with one episode left before a well deserved break it’s time for those anarchic and rambunctious rapscallions of culture to once again do what they do best, and what better way to kick off the penultimate episode of 2018 than with the “Word” of the Year.

Is it still fair to call it that given some of the previous entries? Isn’t it now an oxymoron to call it a “word”? Should we change it to “Thing From the Human Vocabulary” … of the year?

Anyway, after that it’s time to find out what kind of filth has been kept in the Bodleian Library’s secretive Phi collection, why Barrow Island Primary School’s library has technically not checked out any books, where the citizenship of author Milan Kundera went, and what Jonathan Franzen thinks makes a good writer.

The next episode is our last one of 2018, and it’s a doozy so make sure you tune in for the Bad Sex Awards!

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
